Clean, safe, comfortable and very Pura Vida! We happened across this amazing restaurant and hotel in January 2018 while staying at a friends. We fell in love with this place, everything from the very personable service, great local food, and staff who work as a great team and love what they do. We were able to stay right st this hotel Jan 2019 and had a great experience bar none. We will return there again for certain. You must be there for their signature fish taco and BBQ nights! Their friendly knowledgeable staff had us picked up right at the airport with safe transportation, and helped us arrange several great day trip excursions. Nothing like a sunset in Costa Rica from the beach right at this restaurant with a margarita in hand..

The staff really care that you are having a great time! They help you arrange any tours, serve amazing food (really) and are always available. And what's better than being 30 feet from the ocean. We went swimming every morning (afternoon and evening). The beach is really, really clean. We will definitely return to Hotel El Velero!

Top notch wait staff. Good laid back beach vibe. Quieter than Coco beach - in a good way. Beautiful sunsets. Enjoyed taco Tuesday. Rooms were simple but more than adequate and clean. Good value. Would certainly stay there again.

Quaint, tidy hotel on the beach with a great staff. That is all that really needs to be said.. I believe that the value of this hotel is reflected in that statement It is on the beach. It is an attractive, well maintained boutique hotel. And the staff are friendly and helpful, both in the hotel and the restaurant. I enjoyed the meals on site as well as exploring the nearby sea food restaurants. The beach was unbelievably quiet, very relaxing. While the broken safety chain on the door did not concern me personally (I was traveling with my college age son and the location seemed to have no safety concerns), it may make some travelers uncomfortable.

Roll your coconut onto the beach from your bar stool the location on the beach is nice. Playa Hermosa is a very pleasant beach and its close proximity to airport makes it an excellent last night in CR. Our stay would have been perfect if not for the mosquitos in our room enjoying pura vida.
